This is easily the largest Dali book in my collection. Check out the stats:
- 14.5" tall;
- 10.5" wide;
- 2" thick;
- 9 pounds;
- 455 pages;
- more than 1,110 illustrations,
- 672 in full-color.
The book is organized into 12 chronological time periods of Dali's life. Primarily, this is a picture book--it is replete with illustrations and photographs on every page.
For the avid Dali fan, this book holds few surprises. However, it is comprehensive, gigantic, and colorful, making it one of the best Dali books out there.
The book is readily available on internet book sites, but the cost is far more than you can expect to pay when the occasional online auction comes up. The demand is low, so you can expect to pay fewer then $20 at auction, whereas you can pay 2 to 3 times that to buy it outright on the internet.
My advice is to hold out for an auction to snatch this one up cheap.
